You are not even your idea. You’re Jesus’ idea. And he has the ultimate design, the highest information, and the most beautiful story for your life. So he’s the Ultimate Underwriter of your Life Story when you are in Christ.
"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ,
just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love." Ephesians 1:3-4 NKJV
In the mortgage business, insurance, and banking and investing, there are underwriters. These are people of affluence. They invest and back things up.
The early meaning of underwriting is just like it sounds. Someone literally wrote their name under a written statement. An underwriter backs up a venture or financial matter. They also have the potential to reap a return.
The full faith and credit of King Jesus guarantees your destiny
Your life is infinitely more valuable than financial instruments. King Jesus is the Ultimate Underwriter of your life. And his resources are fathomless.
The ascended Jesus is your patron, sponsor, benefactor, and bankroller. He’s your endorser, signatory, and guarantor.
Jesus underwrites his own Word. Jesus’ ability backs every promise in the Word of God.
He also underwrites every personal promise and word he has given you—he is the guarantor of your design and calling!
Know who you are. Even more, know whose you are. Jesus Is the Underwriter of Your Life.
We need to know who we are. Even more, we need to know whose we are.
I love echoing Paul’s apostolic prayer …
"That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give you the Spirit of wisdom and of revelation in the knowledge of him, having the eyes of your hearts enlightened, that you may know what is the hope to which he has called you, what are the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints …” (Ephesians 1:17-18 ESV).
Life has a way of wearing us down. We can forget who and whose we are.
Our thoughts, emotions, and self-understanding can get entangled in the effects of the Fall all around us. We forget who is underwriting us.
A prayer ...
Jesus, you are my guarantor. My patron. You’re the underwriter of my life. The beautiful design and calling of my life story is straight from you. You are Creator and Redeemer. You’ve won it all back. I rest in the full faith and credit of King Jesus. Amen!
